Hi, these belonged to my great grandparents in the 1930s. Any idea if they are valuable? Thank you! !

The website shows identical marks that were in use in the 1960's by the Wa Lee Company in Hong Kong, a porcelain ornamentation workshop dealing in transfer-decorated wares. I have no idea of what that factory was doing in the 1930s, but the Japanese military invaded and occupied the colony in December 1941. From what I can see of it, the pattern is very similar to those coming out of Hong Kong and Macao porcelain ornamentation factories during the 3rd quarter of the 20th century, but there was no shortage of such dishes being produced on the mainland during the Republic period (1912-1949), as witnessed by this plate.

Best regards,

Bill H.

Hi I would not dismiss this as not being of the period i.e..Guangxu as I have seen similar with Guangxu mark and China.Would have to see the foot to be sure and also must ask are the colours true or rather bright
